Brief – Day 3
Day 3 – 7.5km (easy – moderate)
Time on track – approximately 4 hours 15 minutes including stops and breaks
This morning we will start hiking at 9:30am, so you won’t need to rush, but you will need to make sure that your backpack is packed before breakfast is served. We will descent back to Mirimbah on a narrow walking track that runs just below Mt Buller’s North ridge. It was the bridle trail in days gone by when stockmen would take their cattle up high for the summer months. It’s a lovely and relatively easy walk through beautiful forest of towering gum trees. We will stop about half way for a short snack break before tackling the final leg of our trip. From Mirimbah it’s only a 20 minute drive back to Merrijig where you can enjoy a nice pub meal before heading home.
